The aggressive assault on religion, and particularly Christianity, by the "New Atheism" has reached through the airways, and across the web. Writers such as Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins have been as aggressive as they have been virulent against religion. But can their objections and arguments be answered? That is the purpose of the multi-faceted book of essays, God is Good, God is Great: Why Believing in God is reasonable and Responsible written by leading scholars in cosmology, astrophysics, biology, theology, and philosophy including Alister McGrath, Scot McKnight, Gary Habermas, John Polkinghorne, J.P. Moreland, William Lane Craig, and Michael Behe, this book answers to the tough questions and engages the difficult answers.
2010 Christianity Today
Book Award winner! The days have passed when the goodness of God--indeed, the reality of God itself--could reasonably be called a consensus opinion. God's reputation has come under considerable review in recent days, with some going so far as to say that it's not we who've made a mess of things. Instead whatever it is we call God is to blame. But is such an opinion really a fair assessment? In this magisterial collection, the contemporary complaints against belief in God are addressed with intellectual passion and rigor by some of the most astute theological and philosophical minds of the day:
- J. P. Moreland
- Paul Moser
- John Polkinghorne
- Michael Behe
- Michael J. Murray
- Alister McGrath
- Paul Copan
- Jerry Walls
- Charles Taliaferro
- Scot McKnight
- Gary Habermas
- Mark Mittelberg
- Chad Meister
- William Lane Craig
Including an interview by Gary Habermas with noted convert to theism Antony Flew, and a direct critical response to Richard Dawkins's God Delusion
by Alvin Plantinga, God Is Great, God Is Good
offers convincing and compelling reassurance that though the world has changed, God has not.
